ASU lecturer works on unique project together with British scientists

21 November 2019 Faculty of Mathematics and Information Technologies
Young lecturer of the Faculty of Mathematics and Information Technologies of Altai State University Konstantin Shishmarev has been working on a large international research project at the University of East Anglia, Norwich, UK. The work started on November 11 and will last till December 5.

The purpose of the trip is to work on the project of the Russian Science Foundation regarding the effect of air capture during the inclined impact of the body on the surface of the liquid. This project is designed for 3 years, the grant amount is 6,000,000 rubles per year for 10 people, among whom there should be 5 young scientists (including Konstantin Shishmarev). The main project work is carried out at the Institute of Hydrodynamics of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences. In addition, scientists from Altai State University, the Institute of Thermophysics, the University of Nottingham and the University of East Anglia participate in the project.

Actually, the University of East Anglia is the place where Konstantin is engaged in mathematical modeling of the problem of drop impact on a liquid layer and comparing the results with an experiment conducted at the University of Nottingham (using equipment that has no analogues in Russia). Understanding the process of air capture during such an impact is an important task in the development and operation of technological devices in a wide range of industries, including thermal energy, nuclear energy, wind energy, chemical industry, engine building, aircraft manufacturing, etc.

A year ago, Konstantin completed postgraduate studies at the Faculty of Mathematics and Information Technologies of Altai State University and has recently completed work on his PhD thesis, which will be defended on December 24 at the Institute of Hydrodynamics, Novosibirsk. The thesis submitted for defense is devoted to the study of the motion of external bodies and apparatuses on ice in a frozen channel.
